I have incredibly fond memories of games with my childhood friend and her family, my college and grad school friends, and of course my own family. I remember taking my nephew to his first game. I remember the first game Hubby and I went to when we were dating. I remember the highs, the lows, the strikes, the homers, the cotton candy, the hot dogs, the bobbleheads, the 7th inning stretches, the fireworks, and most of all the tremendous excitement I felt watching a major league team play. It never really bothered me when the Bucs lost. Sure I preferred a win, but I loved them just the same. They were my team, and have remained my team.
In honor of the tremendous journey this team has taken over the last 20 years, today I compiled a playlist of some of the top songs from 1993, when I was just 15, and the Pirates began their journey to where they are now.
Raise the Jolly Roger.
